Problem boy is lost. He was great on Monday but has not shown up since. The guidance counselor couldn't help (and she really gave it her all.) Calls to his dad didn't help.
I feel awful about not being able to help this kid. He's not a bad boy. Sure he does some things that aren't very nice but he he does these things for attention and he hurts himself more than he hurts others.
I'm afraid he will end up in jail. I don't think he is criminal but he will end up with the wrong crowd and without an education, crime might be his only choice.
The system is failing Problem Boy. Everyone knows he needs help but there is nothing we can do for him.
